Edward Cullen, beware! Sin has come to town, and he's stealing all your fangirls.



"Love at first sight must be glorious. I wouldn't know, since at first there was no sight. Smell, yeah--the tangy, salty scent of horses. Plenty of other sensations too. But I'll get to that. The point I want to make up front is that by the time I laid eyes on Sinclair Youngblood Powers--in the flesh, that is--I was already in love with him. Nothing could change that. Not even the fact that he was dead."



Candice Moskow is resigned to her new life in the dull little town of Swoon, Connecticut, where nothing ever happens and all the teenagers are cookie-cutter preps. A much different life from her old New York City one, but she can cope. Everything and everyone is normal in Swoon. At least, until her perfect cousin Pen falls from at tree and her soul intertwines with that of a ghost. His name? Sinclair Youngblood Powers. His mission? Revenge. Dice has long known that she was psychic. Seeing the dead or visions every once in awhile? No big deal. Giving a ghost who is bent on bringing her town to ruins his own body and falling in love with him? Not so good. Dice is the only one who knows his secret, and everyone, including herself and her cousin Pen, is in love with him. How do you go about destroying the love of your life?



Nina Malkin has brought to life a captivating story that is designed to seduce and entrap its readers. Sparkle in the sunlight, he does not, but Sin can charm his way into any heart. What I particularly love about Swoon is Sin's character. Nina has done an amazing job in facing her readers with the true, cruel spirit within Sin, and managing to make them fall for him nevertheless. Swoon is full of mystery, surprises, and romance, with a plot that is sure to keep readers up until the wee hours of the morning to reach the last page. From fights with friends, to parties where things don't quite go according to plan, Swoon has situations that many teens could relate to, with a little added flare. Lovers of the supernatural will devour this book, and fanatics of romance will fall under its spell.



So what are you waiting for? Sin has come to a town near you. Prepare to Swoon.
